The story about a family that lost their dog. Finally, they found Him 60 miles away living as a strayl
It’s always dramatic when a beloved pet goes missing. This sad story happened with a Turkey family that lost their dog – Leo in a picnic. They were heartbroken.
Unfortunately, around the time that Leo went missing, the Araç family also lost their two other dogs. They tried to look out for their furry friends but had to admit there was hopeless.
One day months later, their son Sertaç took a 60-mile- trip to another town which was much too far for a dog to travel on his own. Sertaç had intended to spend the day in town working. However, he got the surprise of his life –a wonderful magic.
When he was sitting on the street outside a cafe, he saw a dog without owner. But even though the pup wasn’t in good shape, Sertaç couldn’t stop thinking that he looked exactly like Leo. Fortunately, he found his beloved dog as a stray on the streets, looking tired and dirty. The poor dog had endured long months on the street, separated from his family, hungry and alone.
Do you think that 60 miles is worth to meet your old friend? And what was the chance that he would just happen across him?
But when his parents saw the photo, they had to agree: the resemblance was so uncanny, they had to come to see for themselves. Sertaç said “I took a picture and sent it to my mother and father,” said Sertaç. “I was in doubt.” So, they got on the road and met Sertaç in the town.
The moment they met together, he rushed toward them, leaping ecstatically into his dad’s arms. He just couldn’t contain his excitement. They might not have immediately recognized Leo, but Leo recognized them.
Now, they are all together again and they’re so grateful to have found one another.
“We’re so happy Leo is home. I will look carefully everywhere I visit in hopes we find [the other two dogs],” said Sertaç. “My father and mother will continue to search as long as they can because they see them as their sons and love them.”
The family is luckier than they might realize — on average, only about 10 percent of people whose pets are kidnapped ever see them again. It’s important to supervise your pets and make sure they’re secured when in the yard.
